Okay, so the economy is melting down and nobody knows what happens next. That's pretty terrible. But there IS a silver lining to this situation. I have to monitor about 5 different email accounts and they are ALL public since they exist for the public to reach me. Naturally I get a LOT of SPAM. But I NO LONGER GET 100 pieces of SPAM a day (no exaggeration, there) offering me CREDIT CARDS. Apparently time actually does wound all heels.
